annied MAPUNGUBWE TRIP: DECEMBER 2008

Unread postby annied » Fri Jan 16, 2009 12:00 pm

We visited Mapungubwe for the first time in December - and what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be! Friendly staff, clean & comfortable accommodation and some of the most spectacular scenery to be found on the planet. We were fortunate to see lots of animals during our stay, although not the ever elusive leopard! A visit to Maloutswa Hide was like seeing a pantomime... when the kudu exits stage left, the waterbuck enters stage right! A constant stream of visitors. I could happily have spent an entire day at the hide with my binos and camera. Definitely worth a return visit! And the human waterhole at Leokwe camp after a long, dusty day viewing game? Absolute bliss!!

Now I suppose I've "cooked my own goose" by telling you all how wonderful it is! ;)
